I think a common misconception is that buying sustainable or more eco-friendly fashion is very pricey and not do-able for a lot of people. While this may be the case if you are new in the sustainable realm and don’t exactly know where to start or where to look, there are so many affordable options out there. I compiled a list of 4 affordable and sustainable fashion companies to support and give your business to. Little changes like switching from shopping at Forever 21 and H&M to these companies can create the greener future that we all want and that the earth deserves.
EVERLANE | Everlane is all about their transparency. They want their consumers to know the costs it takes to make their products.

Their prices start at $18.
